Sydney Opera House - Lighting The Sails

This is the Sydney Opera House as you have never seen it before. In May of this year Vivid Sydney – Lighting the Sails, premiered at the Opera House. Its intention was to be a homage to Australia’s most iconic piece of architecture, as well as to its architect Jørn Utzon. Utzon always maintained that he wanted to give architecture a human expression – I believe that the architect, who died in 2008 would have been thrilled to see this.

Fortunately for us German based Urbanscreen are around to breathe live in to this sort of project.  Large-scale projection on urban surfaces is their creative company's field of activity. They conceive and produce custom-made, site-specific media installations using high artistic standards and an interdisciplinary approach to stylistic devices. I think you will agree that this is a superlative piece of art made possible through science.
